Happy #fantasyfriday 🌟
.
Guys, I’m so happy it’s Friday. I’m finding it so hard to focus because I can’t wait to go home and read my books 😂 (an introvert’s dream Friday night). Right now I’m reading Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, and The Stolen Kingdom by @authorbethanyatazadeh on my kindle. (They’re both so good, when I’m not reading all I can think about is what I just read and when I can pick up the book again 🤓). I usually read a physical book and a kindle book at the same time. Do you guys read two books at once?
.
A while ago Alex and I added more shelves to our spare room, and of course, one of them became filled with (some) of my lovely fantasy adventures. I like organizing my shelves my genre.
.
How do you organize your books?

Grow Your Author Platform: 4.3/5 stars

This book offers advice I've never heard of and expands on the principles of book 1, "How Your Book Sells Itself, while still maintaining a friendly tone and easy to read text. I have already implemented some of the strategies for my website. Fir example, she suggests to have a contact form instead of offering your email to avoid spam bots finding you. The book also had great insights to Pinterest that I'd never considered.
.
I will be reading book 3 next

A wonderful way to start the day! I started “The Stolen Kingdom” by @authorbethanyatazadeh this morning and haven’t put it down! My only responsibilities today are reading this book 📖, getting some words in 👩‍💻 and drinking tea ☕️ #amreading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #bethanyatazadeh #thestolenkingdom

Review of The Jinni Key by Bethany Atazadeh ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
.

I want to try something new and hopefully fun with this review. Leave a comment of one emoji that hints at your favorite part of this book!! Mine is 🐘. .
If you had to give up a major part of yourself for love, would you do it? This is a decision Rena is faced with in The Jinni Key. On her 16th birthday, Rena spends a day above water and witnesses a Jinni fall from the sky. A year later, she trades her fin for legs as she searches for her love. The rest of the book is a fast paced story of exciting adventures and love - making this book one that is difficult to put down!
.

At the end of The Stolen Kingdom (Book 1 in the Stolen Kingdom Series - a loose Aladdin retelling) I was more than curious as to how @authorbethanyatazadeh
 would connect the books - she did not disappoint with this loose Little Mermaid retelling!! I love that Bethany used the characters from the first book and introduced the new characters while flawlessly interweaving the plots of the two stories together.  While I can guess at the general idea and some of the characters mentioned in The Jinni Key that will link The Cursed Hunter (a loose Beauty and the Beast retelling) to the first two books, I'm anxious to discover how Bethany will use her writing magic to pull the new story into the first two!! .

“It simply isn’t an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.”- J.R.R. Tolkien 
Happy Belated Cover Reveal Day to @authorbethanyatazadeh 💕🎉🤦🏽‍♀️ So I’m actually a day late with the reveal but since the cover is so gorgeous...why not give it an extra shoutout?! I literally gasped when I saw this cover. And I’m beyond excited that it is a loose Beauty and the Beast retelling!! Ok, ok....before I get ahead of myself, here’s the blurb:
~~~~~~~~~~
Nesrin Ahmadi needs a dragon’s egg, no matter the cost. 
The money from its sale could cancel her family’s enormous debt and keep them in the lavish lifestyle they’re accustomed to. Only one problem. A dragon’s egg is incredibly rare; and no one has ever found one fully intact before.

After years of searching, she’s about to give up, when debtors come to threaten her family. Climbing to heights she’s never dared to go before, Nes risks everything to find an egg… …and finds a dragon instead.
~~~~~~~~~~~
Doesn’t it sound amazing?! If you’ve read any of Bethany’s books, you know you have to add it to your wishlist. And if you haven’t...go pick up the first two books before The Cursed Hunter releases June of 2020! Swipe left to see all three books side by side. 💕

Also, thank you @authorbethanyatazadeh for this lovely @highlandbluffstudio candle. I can’t wait to burn it while I read The Jinni Key. 🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷🎄🛷

The Jinni Key by @authorbethanyatazadeh came out today and it is AMAZING. I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of it and much like The Stolen Kingdom I couldn’t put it down.
.
Retellings are always my favorite kind of stories especially when they’re so different that you’re surprised by everything that’s happening. (Like the Court of Thorns and Roses)
.
If you haven’t started this series you need to, and should pick up The Jinni Key ASAP and not just because my name is in the back 😍😍

this weeks Minnesota Monday features The Stolen Kingdom by @authorbethanyatazadeh 
I know people either love or hate fairy-tale retellings. Well rest assured, this is one to love.
Check out my full review on @thelitbuzz 
@authorbethanyatazadeh takes a refreshing new look at the Aladdin tale that we all think we know and puts a new spin on this story that is nothing like the Disney version, in the best possible way. The Stolen Kingdom is the first book in this series, and if you like this one you are in luck! Book Two, The Jinni Key comes out December 3rd! 
The Stolen Kingdom follows Princess Arie as she attempts to prevent Amir from stealing her kingdom (see what I did there?) and hide the fact that she’s a Gifted woman, something that could get her killed. 
Arie is a great example of a strong female lead and I enjoyed seeing her grow through trials, making reasonable choices and mistakes and interact with the other characters she meets and yet, keep her regal personality throughout. The twist of her being a Gifted woman only adds an extra wrinkle to her quest and she deals with those complications well. Arie and Kadin have such a sweet story and I love that they don’t have an “insta-love” relationship. He respects and balances her in a very relevant way.

All in all I really liked this story and it’s one I all but threw at my teenager once I was done because I can’t wait to talk to her about it!

Guess what?? @authorbethanyaztazadeh has a new book coming out tomorrow, the second book in her Stolen Kingdom series: The Jinni Key!
.
I am terrible at keeping up with reading books around the time of their release, so I am scrambling to finish The Stolen Kingdom in time to start reading this one on release day!  Have you preordered your copy yet?
.
SYNOPSIS OF THE STOLEN KINGDOM
.
How can she protect her kingdom, if she can't protect herself?
.
Arie eagerly anticipates becoming Queen of her humble kingdom. Even when a Jinni’s Gift manifests before her 18th birthday, she fights to hide the forbidden ability
.
But when a neighboring king attempts to marry her and steal her kingdom, discovery feels imminent. Just one slip could cost her throne. And her life
.
A Jinni hunter and his crew of thieves are her only hope for removing this Gift. And she must remove it before it’s exposed. Or die trying

My absolute favorite was Michelle Obama's "Becoming" as audiobook. I can highly recommend it!

A book the world could easily live without, IMO, is part 3 of 50 Shades. 😴 I mean at a certain point it's nothing new anymore. .

What is the best way for you, to keep in tempo with the plot?
.
.
.
I'm not done with #nanowrimo and I'm definitely not reaching 50k by the end of November but I wasn't going to be done at 50k anyway lol. The work continues in any way I can keep the plot moving forward. Progress is progress, even if it means breaking away from the manuscript to go organize ideas in the outline- you're still writing- you just won't have to cut anything out later. I feel like once I start dramatizing my writing and I have a lot of content- its exTREmely hard for me to see the pacing anymore. Writing in a more simplistic way- which I guess is how most people write their first draft- makes keeping the beat and pacing of a good story natural and intuitive. I used to say with shame- "Well, I'm not actually writing, I'm just writing down what happens." Babycakes that is writing. I am not coming out of this without a book.

Are you caught up with #nanowrimo or in a slump?
.
.

The struggle is real my dudes and the beginning was the worst. I finally picked myself up today and pushed on. My inspiration? An epic video  by @meg_latorre and @authorbethanyatazadeh (link is in the bio👉👉👉) This video literally changed my life- I can do this- YOU can do this! I wrote a spectacular amount of words today. Am I anywhere close to being caught up? Not by a longshot, but it doesn't matter. The ultimate goal is not to finish on time, the goal is to cross that finish line at all. Keep going. Do not let your feelings of guilt or frustration or failure make you drop that pencil or stop that typing for a single second. You have the ability and you have the potential to become great. Has the pacing gotten messed up? Just keep going. Do you not know what happens next? Write to yourself and work it out on the page. Are you stuck on a big decision? Remeber that whatever you write- you can change your mind later. First drafts are never reader-ready and no one is the exception to that.

Review of The Stolen Kingdom by Bethany Atazadeh. .
.
"I was not a weak woman. I could save myself."
.
.
5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐....This book was AMAZING!!! I really appreciated the strong female lead. I already pre-ordered the next book. The story  hooked me from the beginning, and I couldn't put this book down.
.
.
Arie is next in line for the throne and she cares deeply about her kingdom. But Arie has a secret - she has Jinni blood and her Gift is difficult to hide. 💫When a neighboring king tries to marry her and steal her kingdom, Arie knows that her Gift could be a danger to her life. 💫She runs away, searching for a way to remove her Jinni Gift, hoping to save her kingdom and her life. 💫Along the  way, Arie encounters many obstacles and befriends a Jinni hunter and his crew of thieves. 💫
The story is enchanting and full of magic. @authorbethanyatazadeh  did a fabulous job and I cannot wait to hear her spin on other classics.

☀️ Good morning, English nerds! ☀️ These are the books I bought in October. Few, but a happy few. I’m looking forward to reading them all. But I’m going to start with Call Down the Hawk, which comes out on Tuesday! 😊 .

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? My schedule has been off the past couple years, so I’m editing or something during that month. June is my power month. I think, if that were NaNoWriMo, I would have won it once or twice. 😜 Instead, this month I’m sending Into the Unreal our to beta readers, and I’m working on a couple new projects. But I don’t think I’ll get the 50,000 words. Of course, it’s early. We’ll see. 😏

“Never use a gift to deceive. Never use a gift to steal. Never use a gift to harm another.” - Bethany Atazadeh
🧞‍♂️
The Once Upon A Book Club August Young Adult box included a retelling of Aladdin. The Stolen Kingdom by Bethany Atazadeh is not your basic retelling, it’s magical and a new creative take on a classic. This is the first book in the series, where each new book will be a different fairytale! I can’t express how freaking excited I am!!! 🧞‍♀️
Check out my review in the second picture or find me on www.goodreads.com/francesca_emma.

The gifts in this box were just utterly perfect for this book! The designs were beautiful and so useful too, can’t wait to where them around! 🧞‍♀️

“Never use a gift to deceive. Never use a gift to steal. Never use a gift to harm another.” - Bethany Atazadeh
🧞‍♂️
The Once Upon A Book Club August Young Adult box included a retelling of Aladdin. The Stolen Kingdom by Bethany Atazadeh is not your basic retelling, it’s magical and a new creative take on a classic. This is the first book in the series, where each new book will be a different fairytale! I can’t express how freaking excited I am!!! 🧞‍♀️

If you're looking for a fun Indie read check out The Stolen Kingdom by @authorbethanyatazadeh!

It's a retelling of the classic Aladdin with its own magical twist. It wasn't what I expected, and I truly enjoyed it!

I can't wait for book two.
And I'm crossing my fingers for more fluffy scenes with Arie and Kadin!

How pretty is the cover on this one? 🤩
It’s an Aladdin retelling, which I admittedly haven’t seen many of. -

So many books, so little time...
.
What makes you decide to buy a book?
.
At the last signing, I chatted with multiple people who joked that their TBR pile was more of a whole shelf. (I relate 😂)
.
So what did I do to share how The Stolen Kingdom stands out?
.
I said, “I bet you’ve never read a retelling like this that keeps surprising you, with a fierce female lead, a mysterious Jinni with unknown abilities, a crew of thieves who steal your heart, and a sweet romance - because you can’t help but fall for a bad boy with a heart...”
.
(Ok I’m kidding, I didn’t say any of that, haha! But I did fumble my way through describing it, as us authors do - and TSK was officially added to a few more TBR piles!)

How can she protect her kingdom, if she can’t protect herself?
.
The Stolen Kingdom is a loose “Aladdin” retelling. Set in a world that humans share with Mermaids, Dragons, and the elusive Jinni, this isn’t the fairytale you remember…
